Eguisheim, France

We spent one lovely day and night in the teeny-tiny village of Eguisheim. This was one of the cutest places we visited this entire trip, and that's saying a lot. It would probably take you about 30 minutes to walk around the whole town. Eguisheim had two Christmas market areas that were connected by these colorful cobblestone streets. There isn't a lot to say about this quiet little town, the pictures say it all.


The street our hotel was on, there were only a few guesthouses in the village. Most people come here on a day trip from Colmar, since it is only a 15 minute drive away. We prefer to always stay the night. In small towns we have found that once the day tourists leave you end up having the town to yourself amongst the locals.

One of the smallest and cutest Christmas markets you will ever find.
